Here are some salient results of a recently released survey of 1,100 Palestinian adults in Gaza and the West Bank. Face to face intensive interviews were conducted in Arabic with participants and the survey has a margin of error of 3.1 percentage points.
73% of the Palestinians surveyed agreed that Jews should be annihilated as per a Hadith demanding the same. Hadiths are considered to be the words and deeds of the Prophet Muhammad and are often seen as equal in weight to the Koran. This particular Hadith is cited in the covenant of Hamas as an obligatory call to Muslims to carry out a genocide of the Jews. Hamas of course is dedicated to commiting genocide and wiping Israel off the map and does everything it can to do both.
80% agreed with a quote from the Hamas covenant about the need for battalions to be raised in the Arab and Islamic world to defeat the Jews and destroy Israel.
72% backed denying the thousands of years of Jewish history in Jerusalem.
62% backed kidnapping Israeli Defense Force soldiers and holding them hostage.
53% backed teaching songs about hating Jews in schools.
61% rejected a two state solution to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, Israel as the homeland of the Jewish people and Palestine as the homeland of the Palestinian people.
66% said that a Palestinian state encompassing Israel should be the goal of the Palestinian people. This would of course necessitate the destruction of Israel.
There’s much more but you get the idea. This scientic survey is just the latest evidence (as if more was needed) that Palestinians are simply not interested in peace with Israel. They’re interested in annihilitating Israelis, destroying the country and taking over the land for themselves, nothing else, and will stoop to any means to do it, including mass murder and trickery.
According to FrontPage Magazine Hitler hid his plans for the Final Solution from the German people because he thought they were too civilized to accept them. Palestinian leaders show no such restraint because they know that Palestinians share no such qualms and support and desire the genocide of the Jewish people and the removal of Israel from the face of the earth. Given Palestinian’s unremitting efforts to accomplish both since Israel first came into existence and Islam’s sordid attitudes and actions toward Jews since it first came into existence who can say its wrong? No one who’s honest, objective, unbiased and has an accurate knowledge of history that’s for sure. It isn’t just the Palestinian leaders who are fanatics, its the Palestinian population as a whole.
And Israel is supposed to make peace with these people? No chance, no chance at all. They don’t want it and will never accept it and anyone who says they think differently is either a fool, an apologist, blind as a bat or trying to trick Israelis and Jews into letting down their guard, which is an old ploy sanctioned by Islam. The survival of Israel doesn’t depend on peace with the Palestinians because that is not possible. It depends on maintaining strength and using it and keeping the Palestinians at bay. Real peace? Forget it.
You can blame Palestinians and the hateful, inflexible seventh century creed they live and breathe for that.
